Minnesota

Dungarvin Minnesota works cooperatively with each person, his or her family, the support team and county/state entities to ensure quality services. At Dungarvin Minnesota, we are committed to our mission of “Respecting and Responding to the Choices of People with Disabilities”. Many people with disabilities need some assistance to live full and productive lives. Even when the person lives with family members, there can be a need for additional support, such as taking the person out into the community or providing assistance with daily personal and household tasks. Dungarvin Minnesota is a company that specializes in these types of support services.

We believe a person’s home should be a place of his or her choosing. We will provide the assistance and support necessary to create a healthy and happy atmosphere. This may be in a rented apartment or house, or a home owned by the people receiving services. Individuals may live alone or with others. Services are also provided to people living with parents or foster care providers.

There is no difference in appearance among the homes where we provide services and the other homes or apartments in the neighborhood. We believe they should be clean, safe, and attractive.

Sengistix

Dungarvin Minnesota utilizes Sengistix in a number of locations. Sengistix utilizes a wide variety of coordinated sensors to provide a “complete package” of custom monitoring tailored to meet unique individual needs. This automated sensing provides caregivers the ability to improve safety, enhance the quality of life, and increase options for greater independence for all individuals requiring support. The person receiving supports has greater independence because paid staff is only called to the home when needed. For more information Sengistix, please visit our Partners.

Getting Started

To seek services, one way is through a case manager, service coordinator or social worker. Contact the county information desk and ask for assistance from the community services for the department serving persons with disabilities.

The case manager will provide assistance on obtaining a funding method. The most common funding source for our services is through the Home and Community Based Services (HBCS) Waiver program. However, there are a variety of other funding sources as well. Once a person has a waiver, a case manager will assist the person in looking for appropriate services based on his or her needs.

We also accept private pay people who need services and supports due to a catastrophic event from a medical procedure, or a work, motorcycle, or automobile accident. We can work with insurance companies and attorneys to provide people the services and supports that are wanted and needed.
